Carell bests Myers at Box Office

According to this story from Reuters, Maxwell Smart took control of the weekend box office in North America, while Mike Myers lost his mojo with his new comedy. 'Get Smart,' a remake of the classic television spy spoof, sold an estimated $39.2 million worth of tickets during its first three days, distributor Warner Bros. Pictures said on Sunday.

Here's the thing I don't get. It's only 1 in the afternoon on Sunday. Do they guesstimate for the remainder of the day?

Between the two movies, I'd much rather see "Get Smart" - even though, according to Paul Lane, "The Love Guru" actually has a local connection.

That said, neither of them looks good enough for me to leave the house to go see. Can you say NetFlix?
